Travis Wetland is an important site for the local and regional conservation of wetland plants. Nearly 80 per cent of pre-European native wetland plant species are present in the wetland, including some now rare on the Canterbury Plains. There are around 53 species of native and introduced birds, including around fifty percent of the population of pukeko in Christchurch.  

Tasks vary, and include planting in the wetland (we can supply gumboots if you need), weeding and tasks in the small onsite nursery.Come and join us from 9:30-12:30pm.

Bring: Your own gardening gloves, sturdy boots or shoes, a water bottle and sunhat. CVNZ encourages volunteers to wear long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and vegetation.

We’ll supply tools, but you are welcome to bring your own.

We'd love to see you there, so please register below. Contact Donna (dlusby@cvnz.org.nz) 021 457 568 for more information. 

Note: Christchurch City Council requires volunteers to provide a vaccine passport to volunteer in their parks and reserves, so please bring yours along. 

COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
